Timelapse tracing in the ONLY way for non-artistic types like me and probably 7+ billion other folks to "draw" while recording. It's not animation stictly speaking...its a great story telling medium that "feels" enough like animation to intregue our listeners. It's worthy of your immediate attention.
Timelapse recording of tracing is, I agree, primitive. It is the most simplistic form of animation/story telling. But it is effective and most importantly INCLUSIVE of us non-never-gonna-probably-animate-folks.
So how hard would it be for the engineering group to give us a private layer that does not show up in the final timelapse video? Is this in the works?
I was glad to see that you guys were ambitous enough to state that you have "motion planned." But by simply building in a privacy layer, you could put some POINTS ON THE BOARD now, not later.
